Rafikis is a place for people to gather. A place with heart for wandering souls who have made a home in Devon or are just passing through. We welcome you all!
Susie and Kian who have made the place – quite literally from the tables to the plates – are passionate travelers who are hanging up their boots for a while to settle in Ashburton. They hope to bring some of their passion and love of other far flung places around the world to this little corner of Devon both in decor and flavour.
Welcome to Rafikis! We are a small independent licenced cafe, serving all day brunches, daily changing lunch specials, homemade cakes, and excellent coffees, beers and wines. You can also grab a freshly made smoothie, a tumeric latte, a matcha green tea or something else from a wide range of drinks to have in or away.
It also just happens to be vegetarian and vegan, but if you are a committed carnivore please don’t let that put you off! We hope that even the most ardent meat eater will enjoy our food and leave feeling satisfied, and perhaps a bit enlightened to the ways of us herbivores. We believe we are all responsible for the world we live in, and to help it become more sustainable the world of humans must learn to eat less meat..but lets not preach!
We endeavor to be thoughtful in all the produce we use. We have made careful decisions about who our suppliers are, combining the best of organic and local produce – at least 80% of our ingredients are organic – with interesting ingredients from around the world, and striving to ensure we are sourcing goods with the highest ethical trading standards, or who promote welfare projects in the countries they work in, without compromising on taste.
